Nuggets@Warriors 10:30 p.m. [ESPN] No more A.I. for Denver. Chauncey Billups (right) comes to his hometown team and Allen Iverson is gone to Detroit. Maybe this will be the first glimpse of Billups in a Nuggets uniform. And isn't that powder blue much more becoming than the darker shade favored by the Pistons?

Maryland shooting guard target Aaron Harrison scored 42 points (including 35 in the second half) in the Houston Defenders' win over Net Gain Sports at Under Armour's Are You From Here? Classic near Dallas. Rivals.com's Eric Bossi weighed in on Harrison's performance . You name a way that a high school, or high-level college, shooting guard could possibly be expected to score the ball and Harrison did it. He used his 6-foot-5 size and strength to overwhelm guys, he drained deep jumpers and he did everything in between while playing like a young Chauncey Billups . Check out highlights of Harrison's game, courtesy of HoopMixTape.com, below.

Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups will miss two games to give his strained left groin time to heal. Billups, averaging 17.1 points and 5.7 assists, injured the groin Dec. 16 against the Rockets and sat out three straight games. The All-Star point guard returned on Christmas Day in Portland but didn't play in the second half of a 107-96 loss. The Nuggets said in an injury update that the move was "not a setback" and the goal was to avoid a "lingering problem." The Nuggets lost to the Mavericks at home on Sunday and will travel to Sacramento on Monday.

L.A. comes out ahead Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel The city of Los Angeles was the biggest winner at the trade deadline. The Clippers and Lakers both made deals that moved them closer to competing with the Thunder. The Clippers acquired Nick Young from the Wizards for almost nothing (Brian Cook and a second-round pick). Young gives them another scorer in the backcourt to help offset the loss of Chauncey Billups. The Lakers made similar progress with the acquisition of point guard Ramon Sessions.

Allen Iverson and the 76ers' reunion tour kicked off with a fantastic opening act. In front of a full house, a video tribute and enough No. 3 jerseys to fill two or three merchandise stands, Iverson kissed the 76ers logo, danced with his teammates and bowed to his adoring fans. All they need to do now is work on their finish. Fans came for No. 3 and stayed for No. 10 - the Sixers' 10th straight loss. Chauncey Billups scored 31 points to help the Nuggets spoil Iverson's return to Philadelphia with a 93-83 win on Monday night.

LOS ANGELES - Perhaps it's not going to be that easy for the Los Angeles Lakers. Hey, it looks like we've got an NBA Finals here. "I don't look at us as underdogs," Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown said after his team outplayed the Lakers last night in a going-away 87-75 victory. "Our players look at themselves as pretty special in their own right." The Pistons were special and very good in surprising everyone but themselves in taking a 1-0 lead in the NBA Finals thanks to a defense that befuddled and bewildered the Lakers.

WASHINGTON -- It was a game in which the Boston Celtics should never have had a shot at victory. And when a potential game-winning three-pointer by Boston guard Dana Barros bounced just long, Juwan Howard jumped high to snatch the rebound, handed the ball to Washington Wizards teammate Chris Whitney and walked off the court with a sheepish smile.Howard knew he had dodged a big bullet, having committed a blunder that had shades of Michigan all over it. With 10 seconds to go and a three-point lead, he called a timeout when the Wizards didn't have any. But, unlike the 1993 NCAA title game when Chris Webber's mistake cost Michigan a chance at a championship, the Wizards were able to escape a 49-point offensive explosion by Celtics forward Antoine Walker with a 110-108 win before a sellout crowd of 20,674 at the MCI Center.

EVEN THOUGH IT didn't last very long, in a way it's a relief that the Washington Wizards' NBA playoff series against the Miami Heat is over. It allows more time to concentrate on the most intrigue-filled, riveting series left, maybe the most of the whole postseason when all is said and done. It's not the Phoenix-Dallas Western Conference semifinal, although that's the sexiest one, and the one featuring the newly minted Most Valuable Player as well as the fastest pace and the most points.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Detroit is famous for gritty, for tough, for unyielding winters, and now an equally stubborn basketball team. The kids here grow up knowing about Joe Louis, Tommy Hearns, the famous Kronk gym, hot and sweaty and turning out champions made of guts and hard labor. The Detroit Pistons are almost there, a win away now after an 88-80 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers last night that gave the Pistons a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. No team has come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals to win the NBA championship.
